Talking about this being his first stint with Ash in comedy, Akshay said, “It is my fifth film with director Vipul Shah and definitely another one to remember. Ash and I had a brief romantic interlude in Rajkumar Santoshi`s Khakee, but Action Replayy is our first romantic comedy together. Believe me, I was blushing through the making,” Akshay said in a statement.
“There`s a lot I wish to tell my audience about. But Vipul wants me to keep things under wraps for the moment. It`s a very special film for me for many reasons. This is my tribute to the 1970s that was the greatest retro era. I was kicked with the idea because I`m entering the time in cinema where my father-in-law was a superstar,” added Akshay.
This all in all light romantic comedy revolves around Kishen and Mala – two bickering senior citizens who go on a rewind mode on their 33rd wedding anniversary only to rediscover their lost romance.
Director Vipul Shah said, “Akki (Akshay) and I have an impeccable box office record. We enjoyed success with Aankhen, Waqt – Race Against Time, Namastey London and Singh is Kinng. “Action Replayy is a film where the two of us return after a gap of almost three years. And believe me, it is a great way to return.
For me, it was an exciting experience because I could bring together Aishwarya and Akshay, a pair I had been wanting to cast for sometime now. They`re both good looking, super-talented and what`s more, they`re fashion icons as well. Akki has made an amazing screen pair with some of the existing girls but believe me, he and Ash are extra special.”
